Garfield Library Needs Votes!

Garfield's library has entered the Follett Challenge. 

"The Follett Challenge was designed to reward school libraries for their work applying technology, content and creativity in ways that engage students, foster literacy and promote critical thinking. "

The video is called "One Book, One School; Community Wide Reading for Plugged-In Teenagers" and was made one of our contributors, Johnny Calcagno and Garfield librarian, Janet Woodward.  The entire freshman class did a field trip to the International District, met with internment survivors, and did papers and projects on the book, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

If you have the time, please check out their video in support of their submission and give them a vote.  It's money that could go to serve the many students who use the Garfield library.
